Well, our weather sounds rather comparable...I really can't tell
if it's snowing or just blowing snow that was already on the ground..whatever,
I went out to let my ducks and geese out and it isn't nice out there.
The ducks and geese looked out the door and said, "thanks but no thanks..."
they may come out later in the day. They do not like wind.

In 1860 a young Indiana family was counted by the census in Benton Township of Taylor County. They were Columbus C. Carter (22, born in Indiana, probably at Danville, Hendricks County), his wife Caroline (also 22, she was born in either Kentucky or Indiana and was also known as Carrie), and their boy, Charles Richard Carter, born in March, 1859, at Danville, IN.
It's likely that the family moved on not much later, possibly to Kansas. Charles married a woman named Lizzie Carey who had been born around 1860 in Illinois. Their first three children were born someplace in Kansas from 1882 to 1889.
Subsequently, Charles and Lizzie, their family and Charles' mother, Carrie, moved to Washington State. I am not sure, but I don't think Columbus was with them.
Children of Charles and Lizzie were as follows: Enola G. (F, b. 1882 in Kansas) Charley C. (b. 1886, Kansas) Floyd M. (b. 1888, Kansas) Annie M. (b. 1889/90, Washington) Mary M. (the later Lizzie or Lena, b. 1893, Washington) Freddie V. (b. 1897, Washington) Florence C. (b. 1900, Washington)
Lizzie died around 1900 and Charles was remarried in 1905. With his second wife, Alice Anna Rodgers (b. 1874, Columbus, IN), he fathered five children. Charles died in 1936 at Sedro Woolley, WA. Any information about these individuals would be greatly appreciated. Mark Danielson Bellingham, WA email@example.com

|Dear Pat - I've emailed you before regarding this
family. Sent for the birth registration of Grace Ella Hoops-
found she was born 10 March 1890 in Ross Twp - Taylor county - this
birth was registered by her brother, Ernest Hoops, in 1943.
This family is not listed in the 1895 Taylor county census but one
married sister is. According to the newspaper index from Taylor
county, Henry C. Hoops married Isabel Hall (Mrs. Harrison) at her
home near Hawleyville (Nebraska twp) Page county in August 1894.
His first wife, my gg grandma, Eliza Jane Dugan Hoops must have
died between 10 March 1890 and (at the latest) early in 1894.
I can't think how to continue to find out when Eliza Jane died and
where. There is no record of her death in Montgomery county (where
Henry died in 1915) none in Page county either. I couldn't
find anything in either your cemeteries. Any suggestions would
be most welcome. Regards Marge in Washington state.
|Searching for ggrandparents. Have them in the 1880 census

Would like exchange info with anyone who might have a connection.
This is all the info I have, basically their names and the one census I have
found them in.
I have an old newspaper cliping about my Grandmother:
May A Long
The newly elected repyblican county auditor. Her many friends say she will make good in the auditor's office, and have great confidence in her. As a matter of fact she received the election with no opposition, after winning in the primary in a three-cornered race. She is the second lady to be elected to office in Taylor county since the ladies have been voting.
I have reviewed all the nwspaper abstracts listed in the web site for Taylor County and have found not listing for this article.
The clipping has no date and nothing was noted as to what year this event took place. I am very insterested in finding the year this happened. I know it has to be after the mid 1920's and before the 1950's.My Grandfather died in 1950 and Grandma moved to California around 1954 or thereabouts.
If you could help me find out what year May M Long was elected Taylor County Auditor, I would appreciate it very much.
Thank you for any assistance you can offer.

Does anyone remember the "Swenson" Country School west of Bedford? I would like to know the name of the teacher in 1925-1926. Would there be any pictures of the school available?
I am researching my paternal grandfather, John Underwood Whitehead(b. 1851 Raytown, TN,; m. Alpha Melvina Dykes 1903 Jeraldstown, Greene Co.,TN) who came to Taylor Co. from Greene Co., TN, sometime after 1904 when their first child was born, had six more children there, then moved to Atchison co., MO, after 1920, when their last child was born. John died Mar 1926 and was buried in Clarinda, IA. From your newspaper page, I found his obit., and names that might be his three sisters, Lula, Effie, and Bertha Whitehead, as well as numerous other Whiteheads who may be mine. I would like to ask for any other information that anyone might have on Taylor Co. Whiteheads-this is the first real break I have had on the Whitehead side, as his info ends on his death cert., with no parents names.
Please e-mail me at: firstname.lastname@example.org if anyone has any info.
Thank you for any help.
Sandy* I referred her to Joyce Whitehead Orr email@example.com. Lots of Whiteheads around here.
